Eric's Heroes: The Redemption of Ginny Burton
Ginny Burton was introduced to marijuana at the age of six. She was using meth at age 12, and by 14 she was smoking crack. At 16 she was raped by a man who bought drugs from her mother. By 17 she'd attempted suicide for the first of many times. She got pregnant and the baby’s father was shot and killed. At 21 she started shooting heroin. By 23 she was a hardcore heroin addict. Today, Ginny is a different woman. A graduate of the University of Washington, Ginny wants to change the world. To know Ginny Burton's story is to believe that no soul is irredeemable. To look at her before-and-after pictures is to understand that truly, anything is possible. "My story isn't an accident," she said. "I think it will be used for everybody else. Maybe I can be some kind of Pied Piper, to help people recover their own lives. That's what I care about. There are some days that I wish I could just slip away here, with a garden, and open up a little cafe. But in reality, I know it's my job to continue to create hope."

Cognitive Behavioral Therapy CBT Explained | BetterHelp
Try online counseling today - CLICK HERE: https://www.betterhelp.com/go/?utm_source=organicyoutube If you or someone you know is dealing with a challenging situation and could benefit from additional support, consider talking to one of the 2,000 licensed online counselors at BetterHelp. Cognitive Behavior Therapy is a goal-oriented form of therapy that commonly addresses depression, anxiety and OCD (Obsessive Compulsive Disorder). A therapist helps a person learn what behavior is holding them back, works with their client to identify negative thoughts and teaches them how to reframe them, so they have a better self-image and healthier relationships with friends and loved ones. CBT focuses on problem-solving and clients create what’s called “thought records.” These worksheets help the person see how their mind is clouding their ability to view matters logically. When a person assumes that their loved one “hates them” for example, that falls into what is called a “cognitive distortion.” Working with a CBT therapist helps a client to learn techniques that they can take away and use in everyday life. That’s why CBT is not a long-term treatment but instead takes place over a couple of months. After completing therapy, the person is equipped to manage their negative thoughts independently. They know how to notice them, analyze their validity, and reframe them from negative to a more balanced perspective. If you’re struggling with chronic negative thinking, CBT can work for you. It's time to find a therapist trained in this type of therapy and begin to feel better now.

WHY I QUIT DRINKING ALCOHOL: My Struggle to Get Sober in College + Advice for Giving Up Alcohol
I quit drinking alcohol just 6 months after turning 21. In this video, I share why I decided to finally quit drinking at 21, my struggle to get sober in college, and advice for giving up alcohol. The college binge drinking environment allowed me to hide my drinking problem in plain sight. I denied that I had a drinking problem for so long because I wasn't even of legal age to drink. I could see how much alcohol was damaging my life and yet I could not give it up. About 8 months ago, I made the decision to quit drinking for good. It has been the hardest, yet most rewarding experience of my life. I have struggled, slipped up, and even relapsed, but I am now just over 6 months sober and could not be happier. Quitting drinking in college is definitely not the norm, but I have been learning how to navigate my new life without alcohol.
